What's new in Episode 214

Today's Guests:
Sebastian Rupley, Co-Crank
Cade Metz, U.S. Editor, The Register
Rafe Needleman, Editor, CNET's Webware

The Topics:
iPhone OS SDK Irks Developers

Apple's new SDK for the iPhone 4.0 OS bars developers from accessing the company's APIs through any sort of intermediary layer that translates applications written in ways Steve Jobs doesn't approve of, writes Cade Metz at The Register.

The Adobe/Apple Dust-up

A blog post by Adobe Flash platform evangelist Lee Brimelow has stirred up the standoff between Apple and Adobe over the inclusion of Flash in Apple's portable devices. He claims that Apple is using app developers as "pawns" in a "crusade against Adobe." The post concludes with this from Brimelow: "Go screw yourself Apple."

FCC Won't Back Away From Net Neutrality

Despite a recent ruling that said the FCC did not have the right to interfere in Comcast's network management issues, the FCC is pushing ahead with its National Broadband Plan without major changes. The FCC still asserts that it has the right to handle network management and net neutrality issues.

Has Apple Trounced Microsoft With the iPad?

"Despite numerous obvious shortcomings, the iPad is sold out," I wrote in a recent column. When Microsoft was pushing its relatively lame portable initiative, almost every desktop and laptop manufacturer instantly developed a pad device. They didn't succeed, though. Will Apple dominate the tablet space once and for all?

IBM Exec Denies Open Source Sellout

IBM will not use its open-source patents in any legal actions it may bring against Paris software company TurboHercules, a company executive has said. In March, IBM sent a letter to TurboHercules President Roger Bowler stating that the French company was illegally using IBM's patented technology in its open- source mainframe emulation software.
